Annual Open House Saturday April 23rd 10am-2pm

On Saturday, April 23rd, 2022, the Purchase Fire Department will open its doors to the community for our annual Open House. This is a statewide recruitment campaign, sponsored by the Fireman’s Association of the State of New York (FASNY), to recruit volunteer firefighters from local communities. In addition to recruitment efforts, the open house is a great opportunity for our residents and families to come learn about their local Fire Department. Firefighters will be giving tours of the firehouse/apparatus and providing valuable fire safety tips. There will also be several demonstrations of Fire Department operations and equipment. We look forward to the opportunity to meet our neighbors and answer any questions that you may have.
